State of play of AI in the healthcare sector

Where does the work on AI solutions for the healthcare sector stand right now? What experiences have we gained, what are the barriers to progress, and how do we overcome them?

At this event, RAIN and Danish Life Science Cluster are inviting a diverse range of individuals who are working in their own unique ways to develop AI solutions for the healthcare sector.

You will have the opportunity to move around and be introduced to various projects and different perspectives on the work with AI in healthcare. Moreover, you will be invited to engage in dialogue along the way.

This event is in Danish.

Sepsis is common among hospitalized patients and a significant economic burden on society. +Priokritisk is an AI-based decision support tool developed based on Cross Track data, which can detect clinical deterioration among hospitalized patients.

Experience Research Leader from Regional Hospital Horsens, Marianne Johansson Jørgensen, talks about how the solution can assist clinicians and ensure better patient care.

Michael Werenberg Mikkelsen, Head of Health IT at Aarhus University Hospital

One thing is the technical development and procurement of AI health solutions for clinical use in a hospital. Another thing is ensuring that the technology is implemented in practice in a way that addresses the identified issues.

Michael Werenberg Mikkelsen works at Aarhus University Hospital to ensure, for example, that labor-saving health technologies are implemented in ways that deliver the sought-after value for employees and patients.
